Because nowadays “more” is always better, an extra pair of robotic fingers is certainly something that we have always dreamed of.
An MIT graduate student in mechanical engineering, Faye Wu, demonstrates this device considering that humans being has always needed a third helping-hand. Typing, removing a bottle cap, opening a letter or peeling a banana are simple tasks that are problematic to do single-handedly. Now, a new robot can provide a helping-hand- or rather, fingers. Supernumerary Robotic Limbs (SRLs) are robotic limbs that, when worn, give you more limbs than you’d normally have. Continue reading
Printoo is a platform of paper-thin circuit boards and modules. It gives makers an open-source, lightweight, flexible, and modular Arduino-compatible platform to create just about anything you want! What makes Printoo amazingly unique is that it comes with a range of printed electronics modules previously unavailable to the public.
Printoo runs Arduino software and is modular, making it extremely easy to create new projects.The first Printoo packs include novel printed modules including LED light strips from VTT, printed batteries from Blue Spark Technologies and Enfucell, organic photodetectors from ISORG, printed polymer solar cells from Mekoprint, and Ynvisible’s printed displays. Also included are modules like Bluetooth LE, DC motor control, flexible LED matrices, and a variety of sensors.
Printoo is now on kickstarter!

I recently discovered this interesting project which I’d like to share with you. Paul wrote this nice tutorial which shows you how to make your own Arduino Nano based Microbot. It’s quite easy to build and the project’s actually suited even for those just starting out in robotics. The supplies are pretty cheap and you’ll end up with something you could use for future projects. Continue reading
